I am looking for cookie recipes with little or no sugar, but still taste good?

Question by Mommy of 5: I am looking for cookie recipes with little or no sugar, but still taste good?
I am looking for cookie recipes with little or no sugar. I am wanting to make cookies for my child’s school and 1 of the children in their class is diabetic and my child is on a low sugar diet, so if someone could help me with finding a good cookie recipe I would be very grateful.

Answer by Sugs
If you have diabetes than you should of gotten free classes on how to keep care of yourself and how to cook and count your carbs. What I learned in one of the cooking classes was that you can cut UP to half the sugar in any recipes to make it better for you. Just cut it each time you make it so you will not notice the difference. Saves tons of calories too.

    Substitute honey or blue agave syrup. Neither of them spike blood insulin levels. They don’t have the same effect that processed bleached sugar has on our bodies. If ever you do use can sugar, you should ALWAYS use raw.

    Nutritional Information
    Amount Per Serving Calories: 74 | Total Fat: 3.4g | Cholesterol: 28mg

    2 eggs
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon white sugar
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup milk
    2 tablespoons butter (optional)
    1 cup vegetable oil for frying
    1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration
    1.Mix all the ingredients, except the flour, to blend. Add the flour a little at a time, and beat until smooth.
    2.Deep-fry in hot oil, about 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). (Fry-Daddy works well). Heat the iron for about 10 seconds in the oil, then dip in batter. Place the iron in oil so it is just level with the top of the batter (If you put it in deeper, the batter will not come off the iron). Remove rosette from oil when lightly browned (it only takes seconds). Drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar. NOTE: If you chill the batter for a while, the rosettes come out thinner and crispier, but it isn’t required.

    i use splenda it will taste good and as long as the kids don’t know it won’t hurt them. here recently i saw sugar free chocolate chips. so look for ones that say no or low sugar. but in most cases just sub with splenda.

    You can use apple- sauce instead of sugar most the time it doesn’t taste bad at all.
    Or use diet soda- the sweetness is there, but the lack of sugar changes the texturee a little but there’s a boscuit with no sugar.

    Or use a bit of brown sugar and SOME applesauce.
    Biscuits have too much sugar in them. At least use unrefined brown sugar, which has lower GI than the white stuff.
    Here is one recipe I found, but it has dates and I wanted to say that dates are like the best thing to make a smoothie, or cookies or cake very sweet.
    They have NO fat, and no refined sugar.
    I am veryintolerant to sugar, I get heart palpitations, I never eat the stuff, if I do , I get a massive spike then slump and major depression next day.
    Dates are completely different- I can eat 2 lbs of them, and have NO sugar effect, the body just processed the raw sweetness in them very very slowly.
    So but some date paste, or dates, and soften them up in a TB of boiling water, put them in the pan- apricot paste can be used too.
